Bio-Implants for Sports Medicine Procedures

Ligaments, tendons, and bone allografts are frequently used in knee and shoulder applications.  Our allograft bioimplants are clinically proven in a variety of surgical applications.  As a result, we are the world's most trusted provider of transplant solutions, allograft bio-implants, and cellular therapies.  Since 1995, over 5 million tissue grafts have been distributed with no disease transmission using AlloWash XG® technology.

Note: Not all bio-implants are available for distribution in every country.
